The Organic Acids Test (OAT) offers a comprehensive snapshot of your overall health. Abnormally high levels of intestinal yeast and bacteria can cause or worsen behavior disorders, hyperactivity, movement disorders, fatigue and immune function.Many people with chronic illnesses and neurological disorders excrete abnormal organic acids in their urine.
The Organic Acids Test also includes markers for vitamin and mineral levels, oxidative stress, neurotransmitter levels.If abnormalities are detected using the OAT, your health care provider may recommend supplements, such as vitamins and antioxidants, or dietary modification.
When treated patients and practitioners have reported significant improvement such as decreased fatigue, regular bowel function, increased energy and alertness, increased concentration, improved verbal skills, less hyperactivity, and decreased abdominal pain.
The OAT is strongly recommended as the initial screening test.
